    Haku33 is a homebrew app to clean the nand, written in C ++ for nintendo switch, open source
    Its function is to eliminate critical files from the console to perform a hard reset of the switch, leaving only the essential to boot
    Routes
    This completely eliminates console logs or other information that CFW ever existed

    objective:
    * Cleaning the nand so it can connect to nintendo and use all original whether you want to uninstall CFW or use emunand(emummc)

    Warning:
    * It is advisable to make a backup before using it, since despite being well tested failures can occur
    * The premise is elimination. Can it be the lack of info that makes you get banned? so far the case has not occurred
    * True that it is not 100% safe but the people who have tested it have not yet been banned
    * If you have a clean backup of the Nand it is better that, and under no circumstances use in switch Patches
    * If your console is Banned there is nothing to do

    This is interesting but shouldn't this be in the homebrew subforum?

    Is this for banned switch or to avoid getting banned?

    if your switch has been banned by Nintendo online then there is NOTHING you can ever do to change that (unless someone in Nintendo changes the logged state of your Switch and removes the ban).

    This is the best way to clean the nand up. 101% safe to avoid banning when moving out from piracy.

    It says that the affected routes are: System:/saves, System:/savesMeta, User:/*
    Does it mean that could be afected the save games or the user profile? Or only the logs there?

    all save games and switch info, profile, etc
    Hard Reset

    is possible to delete only the logs but is not tested yet

    this i think this is the best option from now

    enough to go online with the nand cleaned

    After restoring I got to the "Set up Switch" screen, but after that, I rebooted my Switch, injected Payload (Hekate) and after trying to boot normally I cant boot Switch OS at all (after pressing the button I get a black screen).

    Is there anything I can do right now before I restore my Switch from NAND backup?

    Yeah, that is exactly when the issue is happening. I am unable to boot to ofw - the Switch logo never shows up.

    EDIT: Nevermind, seems the Switch was not taking my exFAT card. Formatted it as FAT32 and working now.

    efuses?
    if system:/saves/8000000000000120 is corrupted the console won't boot

    use hack disk mount to restore it
    or restore the backup of your nand

    remove the sd card after sept

    I don't understand. Why would someone do this if they are not banned? Curious. I was hoping by the title that it would make a banned switch like new again and able to go online.

    you can't unban a switch - thats on Nintendos servers. this removes logs that could point to you using CFW and prevents bans if you decide to go back to normal and dont have a NAND backup from before ever using CFW

    simple for clean any trace of cfw of the nand and be able to get online using ofw without give any bad telemetry to nintendo
    if you d'not have a nand backup this is the best option for clean the nand and go online safe

    I do have a NAND backup from a couple firmwares ago. It has gone online for patches but was not banned (from that point forward I just kept the system offline).

    If, by some miracle, that system/NAND backup never was banned, would your homebrew be a good use in this scenario?

    Thank you!
